Lease Preparations to Protect Your Memphis Rental Property


Not sure what to include in your lease agreement, or even where to find a reliable template that includes all the necessary legal language? That’s why you work with RiverTown Realty. We understand the importance of a strong lease agreement, and we make sure the one your tenants sign outlines all of our expectations and their responsibilities.


Our Custom Lease Agreements Protect You, Your Property, and Your Tenants

Once a tenant has been approved and move-in preparations are set to begin, you have to sign a lease agreement with your new resident. It’s important that you’re not using just any lease that you find on the internet.

At RiverTown Realty, we’re using custom-written lease agreements that are consistent across our rental properties and in full compliance with Memphis and Tennessee laws. We’ve had attorneys review our lease agreement to ensure it protects you, your property, and your tenants.

Our lease agreements hold up in court. But, it rarely comes to that – because our leases are so clear and easy to enforce.

A well-crafted lease is essential to maintaining a positive relationship with your residents. It also serves the longevity of your property. With our top-notch lease agreement tailored to your needs, you don’t have to worry that tenants won’t know what’s expected of them.

Easy-to-understand leasing language

Tenants won’t read a lease agreement that’s full of complex industry jargon. We keep it simple and thorough.


Rental property protection

Our leases hold tenants accountable even while ensuring their needs are met.

Attorney-backed lease inclusions

We ask our lawyers to check out the leases we have tenants sign just to be sure we’ve covered all the potential liabilities and risks.
A stress-free rental experience starts with a strong lease. Let RiverTown Realty protect your rental property and ensure a successful landlord-tenant relationship.

Rent Collection

Our rent collection policy is one of the most important parts of the lease agreement. After reviewing your lease, tenants will understand how much rent is due, when it’s due, what the consequences will be for late and missing payments, and how rent should be paid.


Maintenance Procedures

Tenants need to know how to report maintenance. They also need to understand the importance of making repair requests right away, to avoid deferred and unreported maintenance issues. All the steps are in the lease.


Rules and Regulations

Expect the lease agreement to include all the things we want tenants to do and all the things that they are prohibited from doing. This covers pets, guests, parking, smoking, and changes to the property. Tenants will have a clear understanding of our expectations and their own responsibilities. If there are ever any questions, the answers can almost always be found in the lease.


Lease Terms and Renewals

Your lease will reflect the start and end date of the lease. There will be instructions on what happens in order for the lease to renew, including the amount of notice that a tenant must provide before vacating. Move-out instructions can also be found in the lease agreement, including information on what a tenant has to do before having their security deposit refunded.

Our Testimonials

We've had Rivertown Realty as our property manager for over 4 years now. The team at Rivertown has been outstanding. We continue to build our portfolio knowing that we have a great team to manage it.

Pat and his team (Ruth, Kristie, Dariela) are just phenomenal! I had a struggling property due to mismanagement from my previous property manager. I was cautiously optimistic of their promise but the team signed on 23 tenants within 3-4 months! They clearly understood the neighborhood and market. They are a God send!

- Miles Tiglao -

River Town Realty has been so good to work with. It is so good to have a team you can trust and that takes care of all matters. It's difficult to own properties in a state you don't live in, but working with Patrick and team has made it stress free.

Patrick and his staff have been great to work with; they have been responsive at getting back to me and keeping me updated, and they do what they say they will do. They provided videos before and after the work was completed, got my property rent ready, and it is now rented. I look forward to a long and productive relationship with them.

RiverTown has been managing for me about three years now. I've never had an issue or bad experience with them! When questions arise and I contact them, their response time has been exceptional! Communication and ease of portal/receiving documents is hassle free and greatly appreciated! I would not think twice about using them again, if I make another investment in TN. THANKS ALL!!
